Event Description

The IVRA conference this year on the Intersection of Law and Vegan/Plant-Based Food Accessibility will be held in Glasgow, Scotland. It is sponsored by The Vegan Society and joins forces with Go Vegan Scotland and Plant-Based Health Professionals UK.

The conference runs over the weekend 30th June/1st July 2018 and shares a venue with Plant-Based Health Professionals UK who will hold their one-day conference (on plant-based nutrition) on Saturday 30th June, giving our participants the opportunity to network and benefit from knowledge exchange (see seperate PBHPUK listing for their conference bookings).

The IVRA conference will explore:
The legal status of veganism in different countries and its relationship to vegan food accessibility in public institutions.
The obligations of food service providers.
The regulations that prohibit marketing vegan products using words such as ‘milk’ and ‘cheese’.
Food labelling, including critical perspectives on the way ‘meat’ is labelled and advertised.
The EU REFIT Platform and action under Priority 4 to begin preparatory work to establish a legal definition of vegan food.
Advertising challenges for the vegan community.
Problematic background discourse to vegan legal cases.
How best to campaign for healthy vegan plant-based food in public institutions.
